Industry Challenges

IT organizations are continuously seeking to deliver business value through cost reduction, business process integration, better data quality, higher service quality and greater agility. Strategically, companies are restructuring their IT organizations and adopting multi-unit, multi-location-based service delivery for greater effectiveness. Operationally, they are seeking to stabilize technologies and IT operations through process standardization and best practices. As traditional software testing processes are getting adapted to this new environment, organizations are blending multiple methodologies to achieve their operational and financial goals.

Overview

Traditionally, software quality assurance (SQA) and testing were seen as lower priorities tagged at the end of a development life cycle prior to software product launch or application delivery. Of late, a significant shift has taken place in IT circles, recognizing the strategic role that robust, mature SQA and testing functions play in delivering software quality, increasing customer satisfaction and achieving targeted cost savings. Today on average 40% of IT project budgets are allocated to testing. While the benefits of testing are well-understood, IT organizations still struggle to test software efficiently and effectively. Simply put, software testing is hard to do well.

To overcome these software testing challenges, VST brings a holistic new approach for predictable, efficient and cost-effective software testing.

Our software testing practice is built upon three cornerstones: Process & Methodology, Technology and Organization.
